I bought a Medici "Camino Real" a couple of days ago for $350, full Campagnolo in very good/near mint condition. I think I scored a good deal but I would like to know your opinion on this one, since this is the first time that I own a Medici. I know the whole Masi story behind the brand, but I do not know more than that, and I would like to know how they where regarded at the time.
I own a 1991 Bianchi Campione del mondo and a swiss made Allegro as well with full Campy on both of them, I rode the Medici yesterday and I must say it feels very different that the previous two. I was quite impressed because it's much more lighter than my Bianchi and it responds very fast, although the Bianchi is better for descending the Medici is not bad at all and it climbs amazing. So overall I am very happy with and I know that's what counts, but still I wanted to know a bit more on Medici's and if it was a good deal $$$.
I got it as it is, the only thing that I added where my Cinelli water bottles and changed the brake cables/bar tape to white, they came in black.
